Tall boxes, 1988-2011 are miniature edifices or rather, like skyscrapers that inhabit the interior rooms. As former architect, these "projects" became reality rather than in the planning stage. Besides being just functional boxes, Frank Lloyd Wright said " Give me the luxuries of life, I can do without the necessities."
